2019 Fantasy Outlook
Clark retains his DL eligibility with the Chiefs switching to a 4-3, cementing him as one of this year's top high-upside IDPs. The Chiefs figure to protect plenty of leads, and opponents have no choice but to throw to keep up with Patrick Mahomes. With more dropbacks come more sack opportunities for Clark, who also could see his snap count jump to more than 800 after logging fewer than 750 the last two years in Seattle. Clark's tackle production is modest (73 the last two years), so he might go cold between the sack sprees, but the high points should be notable. Read Past Outlooks

Disruptive in win
DEKansas City Chiefs
September 9, 2019
Clark notched one solo tackle, one sack, a defended pass and one interception during Sunday's 40-26 win over the Jaguars.
When the Chiefs acquired Clark in a trade with the Seahawks in May, the team hoped for this exact kind of impact. Clark matched expectations in his Chiefs debut and is primed to continue serving as the team's premier pass rusher. The veteran defensive end's lack of consistent tackles gives him a low fantasy floor, but his upside in sacks makes him a weekly starter in most IDP formats.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
With Michael Bennett traded to Philly and Cliff Avril retired due to neck issues, Clark is easily the most elite pass rusher left in Seattle. Heading into his fourth pro season, Clark has racked up 19 sacks and four forced fumbles in the last two campaigns. Clark should continue to play around 50 defensive snaps per game and be in the running for another double-digit sack season.
Clark was able to carve out a role for himself on a very talented defensive line, recording 47 tackles, 10 sacks and two forced fumbles in 15 games last season. Now heading into his third season, no team will be caught off guard by Clark's menacing playing style, which could mean a slight decline in numbers. However, the 24-year-old is expected to remain as a substitute behind starters Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril, giving opponent's offensive lines no breaks when it comes to the pass rush.
Clark had a promising rookie season in 2015, totaling three sacks on 333 snaps. Perhaps most important he showed none of the character flaws that caused his draft stock to sink to the second round. He'll be a big part of the D-Line rotation again this year. He's expected to see increased snaps and with it increased tackles and sacks. He's a long way from IDP relevance, but he's an important part of Seattle's defensive front.
A controversial 2015 second-round pick because of off-field trouble at Michigan, Clark is an athletic defensive lineman who can play outside and inside. At 6-3, 271, Clark has a big swingspan and runs a 4.6 40. He won't start, but he'll be a big part of the defensive line rotation if he develops as hoped.
